Robert Oatley Vineyards
Robert Oatley The Pennant Frankland River Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Australia / Western Australia
Andy's Tasting Notes
One of my top recommendations in our range. Made in very limited quantities, this is once again proving to outperform many of the much more expensive Western Australian top Cabernet Sauvignons available. Meticulous care and attention delivers a superlative Cabernet with superb concentration and style, whilst maintaining an equally elegant, nuanced and fresh quality.
Grapes from Block 12 of the 50 year old Justin Vineyard at Franklin River.

Created in 2006, Robert Oatley Vineyards aims to embody the best that Australia can produce where classic grape varieties are matched to the leading wine regions of Australia. Along with grapes from the family properties, some dating back to 1858, the Oatley family draw upon select growers of excellence across a diverse range of climatic regions.
